Reviews of ‘The Change Catalyst’:

2018 Business Book Awards“In the end, it wasn’t so hard to select the overall winner of Business Book of the Year. The Change Catalyst is a book that frankly absolutely anyone in business should read. It says something original with a fresh way of looking at things – and the writing is clear, clean, direct and simply beautiful. I found myself stopping and re-reading paragraphs just for the sheer pleasure of it.”
